The dash light has been on for over a year - it's interesting because the light is on but flashes brighter for some time when driving. After a while it stops flashing and just stays on.
I checked the "clock spring", sure enough there seemed to be a broken wire. Bought a used one that seemed to be OK. After installation, the light stayed on, so I'm no further ahead. I suspect many people have been through this repair. Any suggestions are welcome.

Cheers, Pavel up north.

ps: this problem started when driving home from a shop repair that replaced the draglink and tie rod ball joints, then did an alignment. I should have done the job myself but was lazy (and it was mid winter). I have no clear evidence that the shop screwed up except that the steering box doesn't seem to be centralized... did they do this or was it that way before?

Have you pulled codes to determine the nature of the SRS warning? Have you tried clearing the warning to see if it returns?

No, my little Equus 3040 code reader doesn't read SRS or ABS codes, only engine codes. But I'll check to see if it can turn off the warning light. Thank you!

You may be able to get an auto parts store to pull the code for free. I wouldn’t trust a generic scanner for LR engine codes but SRS is pretty uniform across the brands I think

Unfortunately, our Disco is not licensed for the road at the moment since we drive it only in winter... It'll have to wait until November unless I can find a code reader to sign out and borrow. Thanks for the reply. As an aside, I wonder if I can repair the old broken "clock spring"?

Took the Disco out on a day permit to a well known LR Jag shop. The techie plugged in their high-end code reader and instantly the SRS dash light went out. The reader then said "No Faults". This seemed more than a bit strange because I'd expect that a "clear codes" instruction would have been needed... not so. So, for the moment, everything seems fine! And they didn't charge me... even better.
